About the restaurant
An Asian paradise on the Nichupé Lagoon. Delight yourself with exquisite and authentic cuisines; Thai by our Chef Sawai Suwannachat and Indian by our chef Kishan Singh. Heighten your senses in a jungle hut or in a bungalow over the lagoon, accompanied by our signature cocktails. Feel the magical atmosphere guided by our house DJ Gabriel Guzman.
Dear client, for us your upcoming experience in our restaurant is very important, for that reason we inform you that our Thai & Elefanta Restaurants are in same location, however, for reasons of Plaza la Isla remodelations, we will have a deviation in the access to our entrance, this deviation is through Fashion Harbour, in the hall between the Rolex and Dolce & Gabana stores, you will arrive at Ryoshi's entrance and turning to the right you can find us, if you arrive by the parking lot that is by Palacio de Hierro, just follow the hall that is in front of Ryoshi restaurant and at the end we will be waiting for you.

An Enthusiastic Ode to Culinary Artistry at Le Chic Cancun Nestled in the heart of Cancun's vibrant scene lies a gem that transcends the traditional dining experience: Le Chic. This is not just a restaurant; it's a culinary odyssey that promises to tantalize your taste buds and mesmerize your senses. At the helm of this gastronomic wonderland is Chef Jonathan Gomez Luna, a maestro whose symphony of flavors has earned him the Estrella Damm Chefs’ Choice Award 2022. Imagine stepping into a space where the decor whispers of seduction and luxury, setting the stage for an evening of multisensory delight. Le Chic, acclaimed as the Best Restaurant in Mexico by Travel & Leisure Magazine, is a modernist kitchen where the impossible becomes possible, and the familiar is reinvented with a twist of genius. Chef Gomez Luna, a visionary with roots in Mexico City, has journeyed through the world's most prestigious kitchens, from El Celler de Can Roca to Noma, only to return and weave his magic into the fabric of Mexican gastronomy. His tasting menu is a canvas where each dish is a masterpiece, challenging your perceptions and inviting you to a playful dance of the unexpected. As you indulge in the artistry of dishes like beef tongue with black mole or the Hamachi tartlet with ikura, you'll find yourself part of an exclusive narrative that unfolds with each course. It's a story of passion, innovation, and a deep reverence for the culinary heritage that shapes every creation at Le Chic. So, if you're seeking an extraordinary adventure that goes beyond mere dining, look no further. Le Chic Cancun, with Chef Jonathan Gomez Luna at the forefront, is a celebration of the avant-garde, a testament to the beauty of evolution in the world of fine dining. Prepare to be amazed, puzzled, and utterly enchanted. Bon appétit!

We have been here in Cancun for three months and Alex met us on our first day here. We are staying in the canal homes and it’s very close to this place. Alex is a fantastic manager and is always very attentive. The food and drinks are very good. The view is amazing. We have been here like 12 times. We enjoy everything about this place. 5 stars for everything. We have another 1/2 of a month to month here and we will be back at leave three or four times.

We had the opportunity to come back to what used to be Al Sahar and now call Mono which to be honest just became one of our favorite places to dine. The service from check in to check out and everything in between was spot on. Mathias is the best waiter I have the pleasure to experience in the hospitality business. As a manager of two hotels I know what service is and specially after Covid 19. We can't wait to come back with all our friends and family #Monocancun, #Monogreatsetvice, #monogreatsetvice-mathias
